We've helped hundreds of young couples make their own wedding newspaper for this special day.

A wedding newspaper is quite different from a classical invitation card. It's taller, wider, and allows you to customize every inch of it - to make it look like a real newspaper, with large areas to fill-in with your texts & pictures.

You can include a program, a map, crosswords, the weather forecast, like all the newspapers you find on the news stand.

In order to help you design your newspaper easily, we provide ready-to-use wedding newspaper templates, made for InDesign and Canva.

Even if you don't have any idea about how to make your newspaper, we provide guidelines and you will be able to build it from the software of your choice.

How to make your wedding newspaper?

Are you getting married soon and looking for a unique way to create a keepsake for your guests? Why not create a wedding gazette that includes crossword puzzles, the weather forecast for the bride and groom, an event program, and an access card? Here's how to prepare your wedding newspaper in a few easy steps:

Step 1: Decide on the content. Think about what you want to include in the newspaper. Some ideas could be a crossword puzzle, a weather parody, an event program, and an access card.

Step 2: Choose a layout in our newspaper template library or start a new one. Consider how you want your newspaper to look. Will it be four, eight, twelve pages? Will it be a tabloid or broadsheet newspaper?

Step 3: Create your content. Write out your crossword puzzle clues and answers, create a funny weather parody, design your event program, and prepare your access card. Make sure to double-check all of the information for accuracy.

Step 4: Design the newspaper. Use a newspaper template or design your own layout. Keep in mind that newspapers have different sections, so make sure to label each section accordingly.

Step 5: Add photos and graphics. To make your newspaper more visually appealing, add some photos and graphics. You can use pictures of you and your partner, your wedding venue, or any other relevant images.

Step 6: Proofread and edit. Before printing, make sure to proofread and edit your newspaper. This is especially important for the crossword puzzle and event program sections to ensure there are no errors or typos.

Step 7: Once you're happy with your design, export it as a PDF, order the number of copies you need and distribute them to your guests. You could place them at each table setting, or have them available at a designated area for guests to pick up on their way into the event.

Congratulations! You have created your own wedding gazette, a true sale of creativity, complete with a crossword puzzle, the bride and groom's weather forecast, the ceremony's program, and an access map. This unique flyer will surely save your guests the trouble of guessing the event's details. Your guests will be thrilled to receive this one-of-a-kind memento of your wedding.

Which software to use?

We recommend creating your layout using Canva or Adobe InDesign. These are two widely used graphic design tools. Here's some information to help you make your choice.

Canva is known for its user-friendly interface and accessibility to everyone. It's an online platform where users can quickly create designs using pre-made templates, including the layouts we offer on our website.

Adobe InDesign is a robust and complex professional design software, designed to provide complete control over layout and typography. InDesign is used by publishing professionals to create magazines, books, and brochures found at your local newsstand.

Canva is suitable for most individuals looking for an easy-to-use solution to create their newspaper, which is why we highly recommend its use. InDesign is preferred if you have specific needs or requirements. We offer most of our templates for free for both softwares!

Which size to choose?

We offer two newspaper formats, allowing you to make a choice that best suits your needs.

Tabloid size is the smaller format. The articles are concise, images play a significant role, and the language is simple and direct. This format is perfect for wedding gazettes aiming to capture the joyful essence of the event, highlighting key moments, amusing anecdotes, and expressive photos. The compact nature of the Tabloid also allows for easy distribution to guests.

Broadsheet size is larger. It is associated with a more formal tone or artistic projects. Articles are generally longer, allowing for elaborate narratives. This format is suitable for wedding gazettes looking to document the event in-depth, showcasing detailed stories about the couple, interviews, or photo features. The Broadsheet offers an elegant aesthetic and can serve as a memorable keepsake for the newlyweds and their guests.
